Yawn.... (I confess that typing that word made me think of someone actually yawning which made me yawn. Weird, huh??)
So this afternoon I searched my stash of home decor items. Maybe one day I'll share a picture of my numerous frames, canvases, and tin wall hangings.
And still... my stash failed me. Then, I went to my craft supplies and found a cardboard print that my grandma had given me when I had visited Kentucky last year. I switched out a frame and presto:
Then, I moved my attention to my two black frames. I was beginning to get sick of the watercolor designs so I pulled out my craft supplies and magazines so I could switch to something that would satisfy my love of change.
My already cracked glass mysteriously broke completely.
Then I found extra cork and Mammoth Cave prints that I bought on my trip to KY last year in my craft box.
Wheels began to turn and...
I ultimately settled on this for the hallway (but, there's always the easy option to just change this picture when I get bored):
|This photo depicts the vertical shafts which are formed by water entering through sinkholes on its journey to join underground rivers.|
I've also had these two keys lying in my bedside table since I was in Tombstone, AZ back in the beginning of November. I bought them at the gift shop in the Birdcage Theater because they looked interesting and they were a cheap souvenir.
After finding some interesting scrapbook paper I adhered them and placed them into the frame.
|Luckily the backing is cheap and allowed ample room for the keys to stick in there.|
The end result...
Still nothing in the big frame! *sigh* I'll come up with something eventually.
Oh, and before I go... before I came up with using the keys I flipped through one of my Psychology magazines (which is surprisingly a good place to find some strange and interesting graphics for framing), I nearly ended up using a photo I clipped out.
It may not have worked for today's project but, I can definitely see it being used in a future project.
I think it's really interesting how my little hallway project is now the home for three sentimental art pieces (and I didn't even set out to make it that way!). I'd love to have a home with a large hallway where I can do something similar on a larger scale.
I'm not going to mention my hallway switcheroo to Russ... I'm going to see how long it takes him to notice, haha.
